in reply to run perl script on remote server

If you're running from the command line on server C, why can't you just ssh into server A where your script is and run from the command line there? The script can also ssh over to server B to manipulate your files. If you set things up with ssh public/private keypairs, you can do it without having to store passwords anywhere. You might want to use Net:SSH in your scripts. It's not clear that there's much perl-specific in the question.

    for ssh to server A do we need another software lyk putty or cygwin
      This is the first clue you have given that you are running Windows machines.

      IF these machines are on the same domain, and/or IF your login credentials on C have access to the shares on A and B, you can do something like this from the command-line on machine C:

      C:\> perl \\A\Path\to\code\share\ \\B\path\to\data\Dat +afile.fil
      Then your prograam can use the diamond operator to access the file, without being programmed explicitly for file access on a remote machine.

      If the machines do not have explicit shares, and if you have administrator priviledges,
      You can access the "hidden" shares at the root of the drive like:

      Note : C$ indicates the C:\ drive.

                   I hope life isn't a big joke, because I don't get it.

      I have no idea how to do things in windows-- it's pretty straightforward on a typical *nix setup. NetWallah and Anonymous Monk both posted suggestions that will likely work with windows.
